- from Antarctica
750L - 890L
Antarctica is different from any other continent on Earth. It is almost completely covered by ice—a thick layer of it.
One visitor described the frozen continent this way: “Ice is the beginning of Antarctica and ice is its end. Ice creates more ice, and ice defines ice.” Antarctica’s ice doesn’t stay still. The ice sheets move very slowly. The ice cracks, refreezes, and slowly slides toward the seacoasts, but it never goes away.
